Rahmal Conda is a software developer and entrepreneur, specializing in financial and social web applications. After graduating from Governor’s State University with a degree in Computer Science, he began his career at Lucent Technologies where he developed telecommunications and mobile networking software. He eventually returned to GSU for a Master’s degree in Computer Science. During that period he also developed training simulation software for locomotive engineers.
In 2004, Rahmal went to work for the travel startup Orbitz. It was there he developed a passion for distributed, multi-tiered web applications. As Technical Lead of the Release Management team, Rahmal was instrumental in building out the SCM system that Orbitz used to deploy its consumer travel platform. He went on to join the consumer finance startup CashNetUSA (later renamed Enova Financial), where he helped to develop one of the largest Ruby-based consumer finance applications.
Rahmal eventually moved out to the Bay Area, eager to join the pantheon of startups that were inventing the next generation of web technologies. In 2010 Rahmal joined TripTrace (originally named PlaceBook), as their Chief Architect, where he lead the technical effort to build out the travel and location-based web services, until TripTrace closed in 2011.
Since then Rahmal has worked at several high-profile social start-ups, including Badgeville and Context Optional.
